Thoughts on Jomsvikings

So we're pretty new to the game at Huzzah and kinda learning as we go. I've been playing the Jomsvikings, and they have a battleboard order that lets the opponent choose to either give me 2 fury, or they remove 3 models from the table. Unless we're missing something, this seems obscenely powerful - it effectively sets a clock on the game. They can stall it for 3 turns, assuming they don't let me have fury elsewhere, but after that, their army is just crumbling. I don't even have to move forward!

Am I missing something?

I don't have the book in my hands yet, but everything I've been hearing about the Jomsvikings is that they are a bit overpowered. I should be getting my Northern Fury book in the next week or so, so I'll check back in after I see their full battleboard.

I'm in the same boat as OnTheLam. I'm still waiting for my order to get to NZ on the bit of drift wood they attached it to in the UK...

Oh, I also forgot the "Cancel opponents activation" abilities. I kinda feel like I'm playing Magic with Lightning Bolts and Counterspells.

Mike. That's only fair - I had to wait for that driftwood to get to the UK from NZ with my decals a few weeks back... :D

I still have not tried Joms..yet the battleboard looks like it might take some getting used to.

Well, it might be time to invest in a second piece of drift wood then ;)

So they spend 8 of the medium SAGA dice to wipe out a unit of my levies over the course of 4 turns. I can think of several battleboard abilities that will take out a unit of levies in less time and with less dice.

But if you are fielding a force of all hearthguard then I do feel your pain. :-(
